FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING is the impressive, thought-provoking solo exhibition featuring the works of Haleh Mashian on view at Mash Gallery, a prominent gallery space in the Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District.
HALEH MASHIAN @ MASH GALLERY, October 24 – December 31, 2020
The momentous 25-year retrospective exhibition of figurative and contemporary work, the women depicted in FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING incarnate organic freedom, which cultivates to full bloom on canvas. Mashian is inspired by the female form, which is always distinct in her work— from abstract figures to more realistic renderings—the strength of Mashian’s “characters” shines through. Women are depicted as sexual, powerful, and exactly who they are—without having to capitulate to masculinity as a show of strength. These women are not hard-edged or defiant. They are facets of the internal woman—who embodies a fluid grace, an essential femininity, an inner fortitude.
Mashian’s Magenta Series employs the immediacy of portraiture and the pop feel of the color magenta to celebrate the internal and external in her woman characters.
